Sexual intimacy is a fundamental aspect of human experience, and for many people, its absence not only can compromise quality of life, but also mental health. Normal sexual function requires normal desire, the ability to be aroused, and to orgasm. Each of these aspects are potential sources of dysfunction. These elements depend on both psychological and physical elements. Another source of sexual dysfunction is painful intercourse, which can have a number of different causes. Of course, sexual relations can also be impacted by issues related to your sexual partner, including dysfunction on their part or in how they interact.
